[World-News] Bill Clinton Says Washington DC Riot Is fueled By Poison Politics, Blames Trump

0

The Former United States President Bill Clinton has denounced the violence at the US Capitol, blaming Donald Trump and his supporters in the US Congress.

The statement came on a shocking day for the United States, which saw mobs overrun Congress after a rally by Trump, who had sought to thwart the process of lawmakers certifying election results.

He made this known in a series of tweets on Thursday.

That was the final administrative step before Democratic President-elect Joe Biden enters the White House later this month, but the normally ceremonial affair spiraled into mayhem.

According to him, the riot was fueled by more than four years of poison politics and spreading misinformation.

He said, “Today we faced an unprecedented assault on our Capitol, our Constitution, and our country.

“The assault was fueled by more than four years of poison politics spreading deliberate misinformation, sowing distrust in our system, and pitting Americans against one another.

“The match was lit by Donald Trump and his most ardent enablers, including many in Congress, to overturn the results of an election he lost.

“The election was free, the count was fair, the result is final. We must complete the peaceful transfer of power our Constitution mandates.

“I have always believed that America is made up of good, decent people. I still do.

“If that’s who we really are, we must reject today’s violence, turn the page, and move forward together—honoring our Constitution, remaining committed to a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
